Featured Golf Course Review:
Northampton Valley Country Club -- acceptable course considering easy tee times
Review by: Crusher I showed up as a single on a Saturday in July at about 10:00 a.m. I was sent out within 10 minutes, and played 18 in about 3 1/2 hours. The course was in generally good shape. The layout is a bit of a neighborhood course, winding through some townhomes, and with several street crossings between holes. I never like this sort of hole to hole distance, but it wasn't too bad. I think the traps and landscaping could be improved quite a bit. There are some long par 4's and testy par 3's for the average golfer. I played the tips, as a 7 handicapper, and shot an 80. Typically, I'd say that's about a fair course. With some improved asthetics, I think this could be a nice course. Many of the holes, considered on their own, are nice holes. All in all, I'll call it a 3 out of 5 stars because it's better than all those cow pasture courses out there.

Sand Springs Golf Course -- A tight, no-frills pleasure
Review by: Brian Five-year old Sand Springs is located at the intersection of Rtes. 80 and 81 in the Pocono Mountains. The first course in PA to offer bent-grass from tee box to green, the course is always in excellent condition. This is a shotmaker's course-- there is little room for error, as the trees and wetlands come into play just yards off the fairway. Reading the holes from green to tee, and knowing where to place your next shot, will enable a low score. Don't look for lush water hazards, or well groomed sand traps-- Sand Springs plays into its mountain environment, allowing the trees and wetlands to broach most shots. A variety of lengths on 3s, 4s and 5s. Greens at peak of season are fastest in the area. Don't expect to be blown away by the track-- it's a simple, tight and highly rewarding challenge.
